Chaos and Fractals: New Frontiers of Science by Heinz-Otto Peitgen

Now we know it did. This book is absolutely essential for anyone who wants to understand Chaos Theory and Fractal geometry. At the time we were hoping peotgen our approach of writing a book which would be both accessible without mathematical sophistication and portray these exiting new fields in an authentic manner would find an audience. An Illustrated Course should be accessible to science undergraduates and a broad range of scientists: Views Read Edit View history.

This page was last edited on 20 Augustat xnd Very well written and digestible tome on Chaos and fractals. Feldman Fractals and Chaos: There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Jan 31, Walter rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of them, Hermann Flaschka, deserves to be thanked in particular for his suggestions and improvements.


No trivia or quizzes yet. He is the author chaoe several award-winning books, which were translated into German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Polish and Russian and became worldwide bestsellers. Men like Blaise Pascal, Raul Julia and Benoit Mandelbrot have advanced theories in their times that have contributed to Chaos theory, so the reader can understand that Chaos theory was not pulled out of some theoretical hat.

Currently, while retired from the University of Bremen, he is a professor emeritus at Florida Atlantic University. The exciting part of this theory is that, unlike stochastic pheno Chaos theory is one of peitten most powerful chxos least understood paradigms to have emerged in natural science in the last 50 years.

Meanwhile, Yuvals book Fractal Image Compression: This second edition has several changes. In he was awarded Dr.

Heinz-Otto Peitgen – Wikipedia

It assumes acquaintance with some mathematics, but no details: It is relatively discursive and easy to read, with each chapter telling a coherent story, and it highlights the key concepts and ideas, examining a few models in detail and using worked numerical examples as well as visualisations and illustrations peitgsn twelve pages of colour halftones.

Piet de Roo rated it liked it Aug 18, It is designed either as “a college course fractalss students who are not maths or science majors and have not necessarily taken calculus” or as a mathematics course for high school students, taught instead of or as a precursor to calculus. On January 1,Dr.

They also look at cellular automata, Pascal’s Triangle, and some number theory. His research specialties include mathematics, computer science and medical image computing and emphasize algebraic topologynon-linear functional analysis, partial differential equationsfunctional differential equationsdynamical systemsnumerical analysischaos theoryfractal geometrycomputer graphicsimage processingand image and data analysisas well as medical image computingfocusing on medical diagnostics and surgery with a particular emphasis on oncologyas well as neurodegenerative and cardio-vascular diseases.


Check out Feigenbaum’s constant if you want to understand the evolution of everything.

Now we know it did. We know from many reviews and personal letters that the book is used in a wide range of ways: Show More Show Less.

An Elementary Introduction – buy from Amazon. Oliver rated it really liked it Apr 24, There is no attempt to be comprehensive — it is not the “authoritative general reference” one of the back-cover blurbs proclaims — or to present current research, but New Frontiers of Science treats all the major topics, at least touching on the central ideas and concepts, and goes into quite some detail with some.

Alfredo rated it really liked it Dec 08, Turning to dynamics, New Frontiers of Science uses some simple transformations to introduce sensitivity to initial conditions, mixing and periodic orbits, and ergodicity, before proceeding to the quadratic iterator, period-doubling, the Feigenbaum point, intermittency, and paths to chaos.
